Portland offers the chance to relax and unwind in the local cafes and boutique shops. Our Lee Breakwater is one of the few places left in Australia where you can cast your fishing line into deep, clean southern ocean water while standing next to your car with the expectation of hooking snapper, school shark or whiting whether you are an expert or novice fisherman.

Whale watching from our cliffs and breakwaters can present some extremely close encounters. Whales frequent Portland Bay as a part of their annual breeding migration and can often been seen up very close to our beaches and breakwaters as they frolic and play with their young. Portland is also the hub for other activities such as fishing charters, cable tram rides, cycling and walking paths, National Parks, Maritime Discovery centre, Lighthouses, Historical buildings, shopping and skate park.
